ABSTRACT: Pressure injuries/ulcers are a global health issue, and there is a need for clinicians from many countries and continents to express their opinions on the terminology change (pressure ulcer to injury) and revised staging definitions. A convenience, opinion survey sample of clinicians from the Western Asia Gulf Region enrolled in a yearlong wound care course participated by expressing their opinion about these changes. Results reveal support for the pressure injury terminology and the revised staging definitions.
